    I recommend just setting up as a new phone personally. That is what I did. I have a lot of configurations on my iPhone, lots of e-mail accounts, app settings, and all. I know it can be a pain.
    But how about contacts and notes... Do u still lose them if you set the phone as new?? Coz i dont have outlook or anything like that ( i dont have them on my pc, they are only in my backups... )

    Now if that's the case can't we DFU the device and setup as new phone to make it go back to how it was per say...?
    Or am I missing something?
    Correct, and correct.

    If you updated OTA, just DFU restore back to the firmware you're on right now and you'll have everything all set.

    No, I don't lose them. Because iCloud saves that stuff for me. iCloud is great.

    Thanks bro that's what I figured but just needed some clarity. Now if my blobs were saved on 6.1 could I still be setup for success when downgrades are possible? If and whenever that happens?

    I've always restored from backup and its never caused me any troubles. It's one of Apple's central and most trustworthy tools. No worries.
    Here to help if I can. If I can't I know someone who can!

    If your blobs are saved AND you got to your current firmware via iTunes restore (not OTA), then you might be eligible for a downgrade in the future when hackers find a way to do so.

    One more question:
    I ran StifleStand on my iPhone, will this have any bearing on the jailbreak?

    Nah. It shouldn't. It's just taking advantage of a reversible OS glitch.

    My guess is it will be a brand new tool, with @pimskeks saying ". @planetbeing nice! The GUI is also making progress :-)" if he's working on a brand new GUI, I'm 99% positive it will be a new tool altogether.

    Ok people. I think this should be a legitimate question.
    I am on i4, 6.0.1, tethered JB and I am sure, not the only one in this world. I hope there will be also something like Rocky Racoon on Cydia, as the last time for 5.1., just to switch from tethered to untethered jailbreak
